God didn’t promise sunny skies;
No bed of roses here.
In fact, he promised in this life
We’d often shed a tear.
And yet, He said He’d be with us
Right through the very end.
And if we’d let Him in our heart
Then He would be our friend.
He promised us abundant life,
And hearts filled full of joy,
And love that overflows in us
So strong, none can destroy.
No matter what my circumstance
I know that I am blessed.
And God will comfort, strengthen me
And give me peace and rest.
I thank You, Lord, for all Your gifts
That prove how much You care,
And for the comfort and the peace
Of knowing You are there.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
